hahaha! Those are the cutest little squirrels--one black and one red! We just have the grey squirrels here...

Mildred said...

Hi Shelley, We too only have the grey squirrels and they sure were active today! Your photos with the captions crack me up! Hope all is going well for you this week. Take care.

Bird Girl said...

That is just the cutest darn post! Yep...you and I have been keepin' a low profile. Sometimes one just needs a rest from it all ;-) Love the suet party pics, Shelley!

Lynne at Hasty Brook said...

I do love those feisty red squirrels but your black squirrel is sure pretty!

Arlene said...

I have never seen a black squirrel. Gesh I love it!!! Thanks for sharing!

The Retired One said...

They are such devils!!
We still have squirrels coming to our bird feeder too.... but our suet hangs from a pole that they haven't climbed up (YET!)

Elaine said...

Very cute post! Squirrels do like to hang around the bird feeders. Last winter we had one tunnel through the snow to get up to the deck where he could get to the sunflower seeds. Very cute to watch.

Very cute critters.
I saw Kaibab squirrels at the Grand Canyon North Rim.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Cute post, Shelley.. I surely do miss your great blogs---but do understand that 'life' takes over some of the time...

Hugs,
Betsy

Dorothy said...

Cute squirrels, Shelley! They look pretty guilty to me. If they didn't eat any, it was only because they couldn't get to it!!

BirdingMaine said...

Wait until they invite the raccoons, that's when the real party begins.

Excellent post Shelley!

I have never seen a black squirrel. We have red Fox Squirrels and gray also. This is a fun cute post this morning! We have really been enjoying the squirrels this year, they are non-stop funny.

Jayne said...

What a fun array of suet eaters!!

Jen said...

Busy Busy Aren't they?

Deborah Godin said...

LOL! All that's missing is a food fight!

soggibottom said...

Sad to say we only ever see grey squirrels here in Devon...

I have never seen a red one except on the tv or a book.

FEED THE SQUIRRELS....and all your beautiful birds x x x

Ginnymo said...

Awww! This is such a cute post!!! I love Red Squirrels but never see any and haven't in about two years. I have never seen a black one either. How cute!!

Kim said...

LOL, so cute Shelley!

troutbirder said...

They are the worlds biggest moochers. I don't know why I keep feeding them.

Heather said...

Naughty, naughty! (shaking my finger at the squirrels) I know how THAT goes!

Jenny said...

Fun photos Shelley, made me smile this evening! (-: Are black or very dark squirrels usual for you over there?

Andrea said...

Yes! Suet for everyone. ;D

This Is My Blog - fishing guy said...

Shelly: I looked out the window late last night and to big raccoons were feeding under my feeders. I have the Black Squirrels but not the Red Squirrels around the house.

Deb said...

Love the red squirrels ~ we have black and grey in our garden ... and they LOVE the suet too :-)

Sue said...

You talk squirrel?!! Love it.

The Early Birder said...

Nice one Shelley. Love to see Reds as Greys are the predominant species over here. FAB.

Sandy said...

hahahah, cute.

Tina said...

Oh, how I wish we had those cute little red squirrels, Shelley! Your "talking" post was really cute. Could you send one of those little reds to me!!

FIONA said...

And HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

FIONA said...

Too cute. We have grays and the occasional red, but no blacks. the only time I've seen them was when I worked in DC. I can't remember the name of the park---it's been over 20 years.

We DO have a white squirrel in our neighborhood. I haven't gotten a picture, yet. Perhaps I need to put out some suet.

Samuel said...

Great squirrels!

Mary said...

LOL! Squirrels are great liars about what they have been up to :-) Perfect captions. Such a nice variety of colors in your squirrels.

Daisy said...

Just popping in to say Hi to you, Shelley. :D Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!

Smalltown RN said...

Oh how frustrating to have the squirrels go after the suet....but I do love the colour of the reddish brown squirrel.

I had a visitor to my place yesterday, it's the Clark's Nutcatcher. This bird only visits the Pacific Coast about every 15 years so to see one on our property was a real treat!

THEA said...

Like all the different squirrels there with you Shelley.

With us you only see red.

Sharon said...

Ha ha! Those are so cute. My Chester has yet to show up. I am very worried that something has happened to him. Thanks for the visit. And a really really BIG hug for Scout. Sharon I love that doggy!

Adrienne in Ohio said...

Cute! We use hot pepper suet in the feeder near the deck, and the squirrels don't bother that feeder any longer.

Are you still in classes?

D-Wing said...
